Gap to build new store in Miami

BY Staff Writer

Miami Beach, Fla. — Terranova Corp. has signed a lease with Gap, providing a temporary store for the retailer while it builds its new multi-story location on Lincoln Road in Miami.

Gap will open a new location just off Lincoln Road at 1669 Meridian Ave., two blocks away from Gap’s current location at 1001 Lincoln. The existing Gap will close by early 2013, when Gap will begin redeveloping the building into a two-level, 20,000-sq. ft. flagship store. During construction, Gap will stay open for business at the Meridian Avenue location.

Gap plans to demolish most of the 1001 Lincoln building and create a new store with a modern look but will preserve the building’s historic contribution to Lincoln Road’s architecture.

Starbucks, Amsterdam

BY CSA STAFF

Starbucks blends tradition with innovation, transforming the vault of the historic Amsterdamsche Bank, a landmark building in Rembrandt Square, into its largest store in Europe. The chain’s first “concept” store in Europe, it spans 4,500 sq. ft. and was conceived as a theatre space with a 57-foot coffee bar as its stage, with multi-level areas that provide stages for local bands, poetry readings and other cultural activities. The store will function as a test space for rare and exclusive coffees, diverse coffee brewing methods, and new food concepts.

Starbucks employed local artists (more than 35 local artists and craftspeople worked under the direction of Starbucks concept design director Liz Muller) and used indigenous materials as much as possible in creating the space. As with all Starbucks concept stores, the Amsterdam one offers a significant aesthetic departure, with witty local design touches and built with sustainable materials. Among other things, it features a floor-to-ceiling ‘tattooed’ mural celebrating the history of Dutch coffee traders, repurposed Dutch oak throughout the space, antique Delft blue tiles, a ceiling sculpture created from 1,876 hand-cut wooden blocks, and a wall clad in recycled bicycle inner tubes. The ceiling features a relief composed of 1,876 hand-cut and stained wooden blocks forming the face of Starbucks’ signature Siren. It was built under LEED guidelines to reduce the impact on the environment.
